A Sustainable Approach to Our Native Plant Nursery

Bringing over 25 years of experience  specializing in working with organics, pollinators, meadows, and native landscapes to growing native plants. 

Almost all of our native plants are seed grown and native to the United States. Most are New England ecotypes and straight species. 

We are offering our perennials in 3″ to 1 Gallon sizes and shrubs and trees in 2 Quart to 2 Gallon sizes. As well as a large selection of conepots for deep root systems.

Our nursery is dedicated to growing all of our material with high quality organic amendments, no synthetic chemicals or materials, and with the lowest environmental impacts we can muster. We never use neonicotinoids, which are deadly to native and honey bees and other pollinators.
